I had the same problem.I called Canon and thanks to their suggestion my camera now works.I was using the wrong type of batteries.The best ones to use are rec-chargeable or alkaline batteries specifically for digital devices.I bought the alkaline ones at Shoppers Drug Mart for $7 for two.Hope that works for you.

Canon powershot s90 wont turn on. used it and took pics and it worked fine. shut it off. went to use it a day later and dead. new batteries didnt help.


If you already tried a second battery with no luck, you'll need to have it serviced. If the camera is over a year, the manufacturers warranty is up. If that's the situation, go to this site www.camerasandparts.com All they deal with are Canon Powershot cameras and they do excellent work, the best part is they are much cheaper than Canon. They do really great work on the Canons. That's were a lot of people go for help with the Powershot models.

Lens making strange clicking noise when turned on or zoomed in.


If the noise wasn't there for 3 days and is there now, it can only get worse. I would return it for a replacement.

Use a memory card and memory card reader. If the images come out black you have a bad CCD in your camera.

Black pictures when using flash


The black images with flash mean that the Iris mechanism in the lens is not working properly, and that needs a professional camera repair service.

Wont turn on


It may be the SD memory card causing the problem. I just bought a G7. When I turned it on without an SD card, no problem. I put it my old cheap SD card and it wont turn on. I take out the memory card and battery, then insert the Canon SD card and battery and turn it on, no problem.
Hope this helps someone.
